She was arrested but freed on bail.The next day, she failed to return to her bail address at night for a second time during the hours of her bail curfew.Falkirk Sheriff Court heard that Dolatowski had phoned for an ambulance, giving her location as Westfield Roundabout, Falkirk, near Falkirk football stadium and not far from the M9 motorway, and saying she was having a "mental health crisis".Ms Cuthbertson said: "At 5.10 am, police traced her to be at the location, bail conditions being in place."Paramedics attended, examined her, and had no concerns."She was thereafter arrested, cautioned and charged."Dolatowski, originally from Kirkcaldy, Fife, was on bail with a curfew as part of a deferred sentence order imposed in January this year for battering another inmate in
